News 4 Monsey

On WNBC's New 4 New York telecast today at 6:00 pm, the station's Kendra Farn covers the controversy over the building of a Wal-Mart Supercenter on Route 59 in Monsey. Farn covers both sides of the issue fairly and credits the Alliance for leading the opposition to the project.

What is particularly significant is the way that Farn focuses in on the dangerous and crowded traffic conditions on 59 and, quoting KenHasset for the Alliance, describes these conditions as an "unmitigable disaster," Interestingly, even the person that Farn interviews who likes the idea of a Supercenter, told the reporter, that "this was not a good site" for it, something that we have been harping on all year.
